tiger ... read this somewhere recently ... don't know if it was here on the forum or at one of the bit torrent sites. But DIME prunes it's userbase at midnight Saturday. The site will be down while the process is ongoing, but once it's up again, there should be some slots opened up. Good luck!

I cannot personally verify this, but it's worth a try, right?

Addendum: actually, now that i think about it, i b'lieve DIME is down every night just after midnight for database maintainance ... so no need to wait until Sat.

Was not aware of a cap, but the advice shared regarding Sat night sounds like a good start. If so inclined, I assume there is a moderater that might be contacted about the specifics- maybe a waiting list. My guess is that it might weed out leechers who show little or no upload rates proportionate to their download rates. It does have a tracking mechanism for each user.
